By Adam Baker | Press

Oregon City, OR. –Police officer, veteran and local community leader Adam Baker (R-Oregon City) recently filed to run for House District 40, which covers Gladstone and Oregon City.

Adam Baker has served in multiple capacities as a Police Officer and Detective with the city of Gresham for the past 23 years. He is focused on taking this experience to the legislature to lead the efforts in creating safer communities for all Oregonians, especially those living in Oregon City and Gladstone which is seeing the spill over of crime from Portland.

“Our neighborhoods and towns deserve to be represented by someone who understands the complex issues in front of us. Exploding violence and property crimes are out of control in Portland area, it is time for new leadership in Oregon.” said Baker. “I believe we need new leadership in Salem to curb government overreach infecting our lives, businesses and schools. This is why I am stepping up. Oregonians deserve better.”

Baker is focused on bringing local control back to the community. “It is important for us to balance some of the radical legislation that has been passed in recent years. I will bring a common-sense approach to business, education and public safety, which has been lacking for far too long,” Baker commented.

Baker looks forward to having spirited conversations with families, business owners and community leaders in his race this year. You can take the opportunity to meet him at his campaign kickoff event next Wednesday, February 23rd at 6:30pm in Oregon City.
